It’s Thursday and you know what that means: An all new Aaron Torres podcast is live. Aaron discusses UConn’s decision to cancel its football season — and why it’s not a reason for other fans to worry yet. Then he discusses the NBA Draft deadline and Top 25 following the declaration period. Finally, Aaron is joined by college hoops analyst Rob Dauster to recap the deadline and look ahead to the sport in 2020-2021.
UConn football cancels its season: Aaron opens the show by discussing his alma mater’s decision to cancel their football season (7:00). He explains why UConn almost had no choice but to make this decision and why it isn’t a sign that the rest of college football is in trouble. He then turns his attention to the NBA Draft deadline passing on Monday and his Top 25 heading into 2021 (26:00). He explains why the sport of college basketball was the biggest winner, why LSU had a better deadline than any other team and asks, how low should Kentucky be ranked if Olivier Sarr cant get eligible?
Rob Dauster joins the show (43:30): Next up, college basketball analyst Rob Dauster joins the show, where he and Aaron nerd out on the 2021 college hoops season. They discuss how many teams can actually win a national title, should Villanova be the consensus No. 1 and share more thoughts on Sarr and Kentucky. They finish with rapid fire, discussing whether UConn should be ranked, is Florida State ranked too low and why Penny Hardaway might redeem himself in 2021.
